This afternoon, wheelmen from across the region gathered in Lincoln park and embarked on a journey across the District called the Tweed Ride. The ride was organized by Dandies and Quaintrelles and raised money for Arts for the Aging.
While the Tweed Ride was more of a fashion event than a bicycle ride, it still involved bicycles and riding bicycles. The warm Autumn air and changing leaves provided a perfect day for riding; had I been on my usual routine, I would have been pounding away on the C&O rather than simply enjoying the day.
Below is my photo journal from the event (all my photos available here).
Many on lookers asked what the shenanigans were about. Many riders responded with a poor British accent. You’d think they bought their tweed at Harrods.
At the end we peeled off and got some falafel in Adams Morgan. Several other riders had the same idea. Adams Morgan had been turned into a turn of the century town of leisure.
